Studio E at Cogswell College

Overview

Studio E operates on a Project Based Learning model. It consists of courses that are designed to function like a professional animation studio. The studio is a multi-disciplined environment. We have student artists, animators, technical artists, and even engineers and sound designers; all of whom work together collaboratively to create large scale projects.

Studio E is guided by faculty with industry experience and student work is regularly critiqued by industry professionals. We are focused on creating engaging story-driven content in the form of animated shorts and interactive stories. Currently Studio E is working on an unannounced project which will feature a stand-alone animated short and an interactive version of the story, bundled together as an app for the iPad.

Our development artists use everything from pencil, paint and clay to Maya, Zbrush, Mudbox, Photoshop, Renderman and Fusion. Much of our digital painting and sculpting is done on Cintiqs. Our engineers use tools like X Code, Flash Professional, and Maya, writing code in Objective C, C++ Maya API, Action Script, Mel Script and Python.

Studio E offers students the opportunity to be an important part of a major project that will deliver a great experience, film credit and professional quality content for their demo reel.
